I don’t know what possessed me to create a bucket list, but I am so happy I did. My list helps me prioritize and figure out what’s important to me. I feel such a sense of accomplishment when I cross something off of my list. For example, I wanted to get over my HUGE PHOBIA of public speaking so I put “be in a pageant” on my bucket list. I admired how poise and elegant pageant women were and I’ve always wanted to try it. Never in a million years would I have thought I could do it….but I did. That pageant ended up being one of the most amazing experiences of my life and I plan on doing more pageants! I strongly encourage starting a bucket list…even if you don’t have a lot of goals at first. You can always add them along the way!

Bucket List Ideas:
1. Overcoming a fear
2. Places you want to travel to
3. Accomplishing something that is really important to you
4. Making a difference
5. Do something adventurous
6. Connection/Relationship goals
7. Education Goals
8. Health/Wellness goals
9. Learn or do something completely new, outside of your comfort zone

Don’t make all of your goals hard…make some that you can accomplish today…
